Resisting an officer with violence is an extremely common felony charge that police officers often use to demonstrate their authority and/or gain control over a situation. Many people arrested for resisting with violence by an officer feel that they have done nothing wrong and have difficulty understanding why they were arrested, let alone charged with resisting. In fact, the person arrested is usually the one who suffers physical injury at the hands of the officers. Consequently, somebody facing this charge often feels both physically and emotionally violated.
Resisting an officer with violence can be charged alone, but is often accompanied by the charge of battery on a law enforcement officer (LEO). If there is an allegation which makes out the elements of battery on a LEO, then resisting an officer with violence can also be charged. The reverse, however, is not necessarily the case. Someone can resist an officer with violence without striking the officer (i.e., committing a battery).
